You often hear from people: “I myself am able to deal with my problems” or “I’m still a psychologist!”. And it’s good if this is true, and a person who says such words is happy in his family, happy to meet a new day, work and relationships with people around him bring him joy, and difficulties and problems enrich life, and do not cross it out.
And if not, and ostentatious psychological literacy is protection from the inability to cope with their problems? Another question is how to deal with them, what result will be obtained and at what cost. After all, it happens that a person, based on the desire to be happy, divorced an unfaithful wife, and the resentment still torments him so much that he has not been able to create new lasting relationships. Or, on the contrary, the feeling of guilt for some actions interferes with life. Or work has long become a routine, you want to change something, but it’s very scary, especially when you have a steady income. Or it is very difficult to respond to the next challenge of life: bad behavior of the child or his failure, unwanted pregnancy, moving, loss of a loved one, divorce, stressful situation, loss of work. Or it may be that everything in life is beautiful, but there is one BUT … which over and over again brings a fly in the ointment into a fairly stable life. Or it turned out that everything that he achieved with great difficulty led to a feeling of a dead end, the meaninglessness of life or the futility of his own efforts to make himself or loved ones happy.
Perhaps these situations can be formulated in phrases:
“I’m over it!”,
“We urgently need to change something!”
“I can not do it anymore!”,
“This pain is unbearable!”
When seemingly correct advice from friends and relatives does not help or do not suit you personally. In this case, a competent psychologist will help you to feel and understand the most correct, suitable solution in yourself. And the value of the help of a specialist is precisely in helping you to hear yourself, and not to try on yourself someone else’s, possibly contraindicated experience.
Anyone, even the most experienced person, has faced a certain problem once or twice in his life. The psychologist, by the nature of his work, has listened to many people, constantly improves his knowledge about them, takes into account the peculiarities of the response of different clients to the same situations. There are experiences that we cannot tell anyone about. A psychologist is just that specialist who is obliged to withstand the intensity of your pain without collapsing himself. It is worth contacting a psychologist if you want to express what has not been expressed, without traumatizing those who are dear, to get rid of the accumulated “mental garbage”, if you want to see the situation “from the outside.” A good specialist will help the client to realize and accept himself as he is, to make relations with loved ones more harmonious and to see new prospects for his own development, to “STOP SURVIVAL AND START LIVING!”
